Located in Montgomery County (12 miles from Washington, DC; 35 miles from Baltimore), the Olney Theatre is a nonprofit professional theater producing an eight-show season. Renovated in 1993, Olney Theatre then extended to a year-round season. Some 118,000 patrons attend the theater annually.

At the Olney, performances include new works, reinterpretations of classics, and musical theater.

Opened in 1941, the 450-seat Olney Theatre hosts several community projects. These include the free Summer Shakespeare Festival presented by the National Players, a classical touring group of young actors, as well as student matinees, apprenticeships, and workshops.
